    Trying to find the right blade for the aggressive SE2.
    This combination razor/blade is not OK - way too aggressive.

    Pre-shave: hot shower
    No brush
    Barbasol Sensitive Skin shaving cream
    Razor: Gem Micromatic OC
    Blade: Gem Blue Star (2)
    Post-shave: Dickinson WH, Nivea Sensitive Balm, Pinaud Musk Cologne

    I had been out fishing most of the day so didn't get showered and shaved until this evening. Just wanted a quick shave since it's soon off to bed. I picked up this Sensitive Skin Barbasol last week at Walmart in their travel section bins. I don't believe I've ever used it before. It was very nice. I especially like the scent which reminds me of a Sandalwood scent. Overall, a very good, satisfying shave. I hope everyone is enjoying his / her week!

    I used my new to me Weck Sextoblade U.S. Military Straight for the first time. No stropping necessary. I used a Personna Super Stainless Hair Shaper blade. Then, for OCtober, I finished up with my Gillette NEW LC with Jayaruh handle.

    I started off with Proraso Pre Shave. The Soap Commander Renewal face-lathered well with the Jayaruh #222 synthetic brush. I did the first pass with my Weck U.S. Military straight with a Personna Super Stainless Hair Shaper blade and then clean up with the Gillette NEW LC and Gillette Silver Blue blade and ended up with a close, comfortable shave.
